Welcome to Mulberry School

Welcome to Mulberry School The Mulberry School is an independent, private, non-profit school that provides children with the opportunity to learn in an environment that values curiosity and natural development. We work to "nurture the innate love of learning" by teaching children how, as opposed to what, to learn.

Serving the Bloomington-Normal community since 1971, Mulberry School is a cooperative institution where parents have the opportunity to participate in nearly every aspect of the school. It is this support and input that allows us to provide a unique learning experience for our students.

  • The Cultural Diversity Celebration is coming back to Mulberry School on December 17 in the afternoon! Small groups of students fly to different countries to learn about other cultures and celebrations. In the past, we have had parents share dances, crafts, stories, foods, and other activities with the students. This fun and educational event is for children who normally attend school on Wednesday afternoons.
